ORPC Canada acknowledges the historic and continued implications of colonial actions on Indigenous Peoples and their traditional lands and territories. We are committed to working alongside Indigenous communities and undertaking our responsibility in implementing TRC Call to Action #92 into our corporate policy and core operational activities.

 

Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Calls to Action

We commit to taking action towards reconciliation by:

  • Ensuring that Indigenous peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities at ORPC Canada.
  • Supporting ongoing education and training of owners and staff in the history and culture of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
  • Ensuring that non-Indigenous partners undertake proper and respectful consultation with First Nations in the course of project development.
  • Working to optimize First Nations’ project training and employment opportunities, and to develop human resources capacity for First Nations communities.
  • Respectfully engaging with non-Indigenous Canadians to encourage them to learn about and participate in reconciliation.
